Cibi Favolosi (fabulous foods)


What a wonderful trip to Morrisons we had on Thursday morning! The children pushed themselves out of their comfort zones to try a range of different foods they hadn't tried before. Some of which they went back for more; others they probably won't be in a hurry to taste again!


We tried several Italian foods such as fresh Ciabatta with olive oil and fresh basil leaves, various cold pastas, Italian meats and cheeses including a blue cheese.


We tried Italian olives and Greek olives to compare them to.


The butchery department talked the children through the process of making minced beef, used for bolognaise and demonstrated making fresh burgers too.


Our children were also luckily enough to look at and touch various fresh fish including a squid!  We have since tasted some cooked octopus in school which got very mixed reviews!


In school we learnt about how olive oil is made and we visited the oils aisle to look at the various choices on offer.


Morrisons provided cookies and a drink each in the café to conclude our visit which the children (and adults) really enjoyed.

We have begun our new topic of Chocolate with gusto in Year 3. We are learning the history of chocolate and about its origins.

The children are enjoying discovering characters in our story, Charlie and the Chocolate factory, and imagining their own inventions to be considered by Willy Wonka!
